LUKE MARC HUGHES | Drums & Percussion

ABOUT

Originally from the small Welsh town of Usk, I picked up the sticks at the early age of 6 after being in complete awe of one of the drummers I had seen on Top Of The Pops. From there on I began playing on pots & pans in the kitchen to pubs and clubs at the age of 14 with various bands whilst achieving a distinction in my grade 8 drum kit.

Now based in South London I’ve been lucky enough to play some amazing and iconic venues around the world, worked with some amazing people and recorded in some of the UK’s top studios. Recent work includes Charlotte Church on her tours & promo as well as in the studio on her new releases and also with british singer/songwriter Tom Odell touring and promoting his second top 10 album ‘Wrong Crowd’ (Sony) worldwide with festival slots at Glastonbury, T in the Park, PinkPop, V Festival, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Fuji Rocks etc and TV including Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late show with James Corden, Top Of The Pops, Graham Norton, The Voice, The Today Show New York and more. Other artists & shows I’ve been luck to work with include Adam Lambert, LeAnn Rimes, Coves, The X Factor UK, Laurel, Carrie Underwood, Lucy Spraggan, Catherine McGraph, The Hearts + more.

I’m a versatile musician who always puts the song and artist first. With an easy going personality I enjoy being part of a project and always continue to push myself musically.
